The mighty River Ebro has without doubt becoming one of Europe’s premier catfish fishing destination. It’s quickly becoming one of the places to rival anywhere in the world for the sheer volume and size of catfish. 100 lbs catfish are regularly being caught and specimens to over 200  lbs are starting to show. Our record fish is one tipping the scales at 236 lbs and who knows, perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to beat it on your next trip to Spain with Adventure Fishing Holidays.

Our tour is centred around the town of Mequinenza, which has some of the best and most reliable fishing anywhere on the River Ebro. Also by being highly mobile and having some of the best guides on the river, we are able to select the prime fishing spots between Mequinenza and the Upper Lake at Caspe. This ensures we get you to the right spot at the right time to catch that specimen monster catfish. The river around Mequinenza is renowned for its superb catfish fishing and the picturesque town make a great place to unwind after a long day on the river. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to make the night life worth trying out.
We offer fully guided half week trips to some of the best exclusive spots on the river between Mequinenza and Caspe, some of which you can only reach by boat, so book your place now and joins on an adventure of a lifetime ‘catfishing’ in spain!
